+ - Should developers fix Microsoft's past mistakes?

Submitted by

MythMoth writes "We've heard all about the pain and discomfort of working with Windows' User Account Control (UAC) switched on, but now Ian Griffiths is explaining that the developers are the problem — they brought it on themselves.

In earlier articles we have heard that Microsoft think that everyone should do it like this — Ian does acknowledge that things are better in the Unix world, but is he right? Is the onus now on the developers to help fix a problem that they did not cause?

Should Microsoft maybe use the dialog that Ian proposes to push the point home?"
